PAS Releases Version 5.0 of Invensys Foxboro I/A Asset Model

February 23, 2012

PAS recently released an updated Integrity/DOC4000 asset mode for Invensys that allows users to incorporate their Foxboro I/A system into Integrity/DOC4000 for the aggregation and contextualization of data. 

Enhancements/Fixes Include:

  • Added the STEP parameters to the Properties tab for CALC and CALCA Blocks.
  •  HLBL code will show the include files integrated into the main program. It will also reference all the blocks in the entire program with include files also included. File compare tab will be looking at the integrated program. 
  •  Changed the way HLBL is handled in the system. BLOCKS and HLBL act as one item. They are still in separate places but the program can be viewed in either the BLOCK or the HLBL.
  •  The HLBL object no longer show on the MAP tab. The BLOCK will now show all the connections within the Block parameters and the HLBL program. The parameters with assignments in the program will be show on the BLOCK. E.g. RI0001 TestInput
  •  Added a tab called “Point Info” to the Historians in the tree. This tab will show how many points are in the historian and how many are used. It will also show the host station.
  • Added a function that will allow users to remove CPs or stations from the tree. The option will be configurable from the admin tool.
  • Added the LOOPID to the footer in BLOCKS on the MAP if the LOOPID is available.
  • Resolved the issue with LadderLogic files not showing when the tab was selected. Resolved the issue with Blocks that had the same block name as the compound name not showing in the database.
  • Resolved the issue with the “Create Annunciator Keyboard Objects” throwing the error, “System.ArgumentException: Mismatch in quantity of Property Names and Values for Keyboard – XXXXXX”. Added code to handle a previous unknown data condition.
  •  Disabled the change tracking for the timestamp parameter on files for Graphics and HLBL Code. Will no longer report a change if the timestamp changes.
  •  Resolved the issue with the script that Untars the tar file. If a bad or incorrect file was encountered the script would exit without untarring the file. The script will now continue to untar the file and report a warning in the log file.
  • Resolved issue with HART FBM cards not showing Spares correctly.
  • Resolved issue where the <<>> characters act like remove characters. Changed the code to keep this from happening.
  •  Resolved an issue with the Graphics – Blocks Integrity check reporting BLOCKS that were not in the correct format.
  •  Changed the Duplicate Channels Integrity issue to only include FBMs that have outputs. This should reduce the findings to outputs and eliminate the inputs being checked.
  •  Popup windows where being reported when the data collection was done under the “FOX” user id in the scheduler. The fix is to create another user with the same permissions as “FOX” and use that id in the scheduler.
  •  Resolved issue of the ICCSHarp.dll not being specified correctly.
  • Data collection script was having issues with the –p option on mkdir commands in older UNIX machines. Removed the –p option to resolve the issue.
  • Data collection scripts for UNIX machine were having issues code that used the ^ “d:” option to remove the front part of directory path. Changed the code to not use the command for UNIX machines.
  • Resolved issue with the “Create FBM” script from erroring on hardware type of 200.
  • The untar script will now continue to untar the file after an error is encountered. It used to stop once an error was encountered.
  •  Resolved issues with the “Create SFC step and transition” script so that it will now handle transitions with the same name.
  •  Resolved issue with Block-Block reference getting an error due to a message having single quotes in the message. Single quotes can also denote a substitution.
This is available to all customers on support with Integrity/DOC4000 v3.1 or higher.
